This has been a live staple for some time now. I had the feeling that if it´s ever going to appear on an album it should be on this one. It fits in well with the rest of the material.


Towards Solid Ground
or The Artists´s Lullaby

I´m not holding back anything
just to make you say "Please"
Should I come up with more words
to comfort the lost and the lonely?
When none of my rhymes will be heard
by any one of these
I have to admit
I´m in it for your beauty only

There is a hunger
there is a need
that is stronger
than love or creed
There is a light
on a distant shore
cutting through the night
darker than before
There is a cold voice calling

You don´t think
You don´t know
In a blink
memories flow
the great eclipse
a very last drink
parting lips
time to go

I´m not taking back anything
it´s all part of the scheme
Should I strip naked and squeal
just to appear a little less boring?
When nothing I say will make up
for the loss of a dream
I have to admit
I never got round to finishing the story
